Full-time Student Fares (Age 21 and Over)

Frequent travel

Fares on a Multicard

If you plan to travel frequently on the Société de transport de l'Outaouais (STO) system, get the Multi card to take advantage of the passes that can be loaded on it.

Because paratransit vehicles are not equipped with readers, it is not possible to use the e-wallet on the Multi card. Consequently, the cash fare for paratransit is the same as the fare paid using the e-wallet on the STO's regular system.

Cash

The cash fare is the best option for occasional trips.

The exact fare is required, because bus drivers cannot give change. Also, they cannot issue receipts or accept tips. Pennies are not accepted.

Multi

The Multi is a smart card that:

  • Personalized and not transferable because your name, rider category and photo appear on it. You are therefore the only person who can use your card;
  • Loaded with one or more STO passes giving you access to the paratransit service;

Conditions for obtaining a Multi

You can get your Multi card only at one of the 4 service points for $8 (non-taxable).

To obtain a card, an ID card with photo is required, such as a health insurance card or driver's licence.

If you are a full-time student at an academic institution recognized by Quebec’s Ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport, the following supporting documents are required to obtain a card:

  • Proof of age;
  • Proof of full-time registration at an academic institution recognized by Quebec’s Ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport.

Note: The student Multi must be renewed every September.

Recharging the card

Once the Multi card has been issued, it can be recharged at any time at one of the 4 service points, the issuing centre, one of the recharging sites or on line in My Profile.

Lost, damaged, stolen or defective card

  • If your card is lost, damaged or stolen, go to one of the 4 service points to get a new Multi card and its contents for a fee of $10 (non-taxable). If your card had no cash value, a fee of $8 (non-taxable) is payable.
  • If your Multi card is defective, it will be replaced at no charge.

The monthly pass is loaded on the Multi It gives you unlimited travel for the entire month (from the first to the last day of the month). It is ideal if you use the paratransit service several times a month.
